It’s been a busy half-term, including lots of money-raising activities going on. Here’s an update on three events at which you have generously donated money:
- Our Summer Fair this year raised £1148.94 for the PTA. This is a tremendous demonstration of the commitment and goodwill parents /carers, children and staff have for our school and its community. It’s even more significant when we remember just a few months ago we were wondering if the Summer Fair would go ahead due to the absence of a PTA Chair at the moment, and it should help to motivate us all to continue to raise funds. Money raised currently goes towards class trips and other activities. If you’ve other ideas about fund-raising events or how we should spend the money, please contact Mrs Maver. (Please note: the winner of the Half ‘n’ Half Jar has still not come forward to collect their prize of £100.50 – it’s ticket 176. We’ll donate this money to the PTA if nobody claims the prize soon.)
- The Hot Shots sponsored football event during Community Week raised £341.10. This money has been donated to a charity helping victims of Japan’s earthquake – an idea put forward to the School Council a few months ago.
- Most recently, £75.11 was donated at the Year 5 and 6 production of Bugsy Malone. This money will be donated to our current two charities, WWF and NSPCC. As well as being hugely enjoyable and great for children’s confidence and engagement, it’s great that our termly productions can be supported by family and friends in this way.
Thank you to all for your continued support.
